Marina del Rey and Birthday in Venice

The Sail from Catalina Island to Marina del Rey was fast and a bit uncomfortable. Pulling into the channel it sure was pretty! After a bit of remoteness, feelings are mixed about getting back into civilization. But we had spent a good 10 days on Catalina Island and slowly wanted to move towards San Francisco.

We found a fair priced Marina by the Burton Chace Park and went for a stroll. Mats was happy to ride his bike again and we all enjoyed a hot shower.

In the evening we went to explore more of the area and started being very hungry. Mats did not want to ride his bike anymore, so we stopped at a fish restaurant. The food was simply not good! A bit disappointed and after Mats had some ice-cream, we started our long walk back to the boat. It’s hard to beat the happy hour at Seafood Peddler in Sausalito or the fresh fish in Mexico. But man, that restaurant was bad.

The next day was my birthday and we took an Uber to Venice Beach!

It was a lot of fun. We rented some bikes and cruised from Venice Beach to Santa Monica. Of course we did a stop at Muscle Beach, watched some street artists and finished a beautiful day at a nice restaurant with self brewed beers.

On our last day in the area, we went and visited friends of mine in Santa Monica. The daughter of my aunt and her family. It was so nice to see them. It was the first time for them to meet Mats and they were very cute with him. We’ve been knowing each other since I was born. 🙂

The next morning we were off sailing to our next destination: MALIBU BEACH!
